Show Your Stars and Stripes

With The 4th of July just around the corner, I thought this would be a good time to remind you to get out the Flags, the bunting, the Stars and Stripes and get ready to hang them with pride.
You don't get much more all American than this :) A vintage red Chevy pick-up parked next to a barn that is hanging it's flags with pride.  I love the red and white tablecloth laying over the white vintage lace
Keep your eyes out.  I will be a featuring a fourth of July Give-Away that will make your cupcakes look fantastic and patriotic. So keep checking back in the next few days.  I love the small flags added to these cake-stands :)
How fun (and useful) would it be to find this flag fan at your place setting.  What a wonderful way to keep cool on a hot summer day.  This and an Ice Cold glass of  lemonade and you'll be all set :)
These fun and festive sparkler picks can be used in flower arrangements, as fruit picks, or in drinks as well as cupcakes. The are by Bethany Lowe and can be found at Victorian Trading Company
I love these flag fans, I've made them and they're fun and easy. You can find the free clip-art and directions at MarthaStewart.com 
I love the beauty and simplicity of these small flags hanging on the mailbox.
I love the 4th of July.  What a great holiday!  Time to appreciate living in the greatest country on Earth.  Time to celebrate our freedom by spending a warm summer day with family and friends.  Time to eat great food.  So enjoy your blessings and have a wonderful 4th of July.
